Dear family and friends,

Korey is baptised! I have been blessed to have a baptism my very last week here in Canada! So sweet. 

My full time service as a missionary means a lot to me. As this calling is coming to a close I can say that I have been transformed by the experiences. 

I learned the principle of becoming. I know that my heart can become more and more pure as I think good thoughts, say good words and do good deeds. My body is a history of what I've eaten and my heart and soul is a history of what I have done. I know that this positive ability to change comes from the Grace of the Father and the Son. So many times when I notice the weaknesses and sins of myself I think about the Perfect Father and His Love, how He is slow to anger and quick to forgive, and how He sent His Son. I am grateful for the strength and forgiveness I have received. 

One of the miracles I have seen is that I have been able to see at least one baptism, or fruit, in all 7 areas that I have served in. I know that miracles follow faith in Jesus Christ. I am blessed to be able to be a leader this way. Leading from the font. I have also learned to be a good follower and a good leader.

I have served faithfully. I have obeyed the rules, been forgiven of my wrong doings and I have learned to strive for excellence, for average is the enemy of excellence. I have learned to love freely and learned to uplift all. I have gained friendships here that I will never forget. I have learned the doctrines and know them by heart. I have become the master of my mind. I love my family much more than before. I know that the plan of salvation is real. There are no goodbyes in the gospel. 

My journal will be one of my most cherished things. I know that I can look to it and gain strength and comfort and it makes me smile. 

My heart is as calm as a mirrored lake. I am not nervous about going home. I have planned and I have received the knowledge that my mission is still the same and I can still be doing good constantly to keep a good history, a good heart. I know that my Father is pleased with the things that I have been able to accomplish here together with Him.

I know that there is so much more God has prepared for me. I know that I will look back and know that the mission is only the MTC for the rest of my life. That is what my mission means to me.
